Zola: Impressed by Smith

The midfielder, 19, made his first-team debut for the club on the opening day of the season as he stepped off the bench in the 3-2 win at Crystal Palace, and manager Gianfranco Zola has been impressed with what he has seen of the youngster.

Smith, whose deal also includes the option of a further 12 months, follows in the footsteps of fellow hot prospects Sean Murray and Tommie Hoban by penning a long-term deal.

Zola told the club's official website: "Connor is one of the young players who really impressed us straight away.

"You can see he is a midfielder who has a good eye for a goal, physically he is very good and technically as well. He is the type of midfielder that can be good at defending and also coming forward so we value him highly."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
